Block and Blade

At your Market Meat & Seafood Department, we pride ourselves on offering high-quality choices through our Block & Blade program. Reliable partnerships with local farmers, ranchers and fisherfolk ensures that we can provide premium provisions.

Our talented and skilled Butchers and Fishmongers are here to answer any questions you might have and are always ready to create a custom cut. In addition, we prepare a wide range of value-added choices with our own recipes, such as grill-ready and pan-ready entrées that are seasoned, marinated and ready to cook for your convenience.

Fresh and flavorful, our Block & Blade provisions are perfect for special occasions and everyday meals. Whether you’re seeking a mouthwatering stuffed and custom-tied pork roast, thick-cut steaks, beautiful baby-back pork ribs, marinated chicken breasts or a fresh salmon fillet, you’ll find it all right here.

Seafood Watch

By following the precise standards of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch, we’re able to provide seafood recommendations based on sustainability and best-practices for both fished and farmed choices. Seafood Watch has developed the most trusted, rigorous standards for fishing and aquaculture practices worldwide. These standards are built on a solid foundation of science and collaboration and set the global bar for environmentally sustainable seafood. Just look for the easy-to-follow, color-coded indicators on our seafood when you shop.
